Bring America Back Home

This petition had 1,767 supporters


We have a housing crisis in the United States. Rising homelessness has led some communities to declare a state of emergency. We can see it wherever we live, in big cities and small towns. Hundreds of thousands of people are sleeping in cars, tents and in doorways. Millions more are just a crisis away from homelessness. A layoff or a serious sickness could put the roof over their heads at risk.

Our grandparents, moms and dads, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers deserve safe, stable, affordable homes.

This is not a natural emergency. It is human made. We can solve this crisis if we choose to.

Across the country, there is a shortage of 7 million affordable homes.
 
The solution is simple: People need homes. 

We can build 7 million homes with the support of all levels of government. State and local governments must be part of the solution by investing in affordable homes and removing barriers and creating incentives for building affordable homes.

But local communities can't solve this alone. It is time the federal government reinvested in affordable homes.

Join us in calling on the federal, state, and local governments to take emergency action and to create 7 million new affordable homes NOW to bring America back home.
